High Protein Chocolate Brownie

This healthy brownie is great for when you are craving something sweet and need an afternoon pick-me-up snack, but you don’t want to ruin your dinner.  It’s also the perfect pre-workout meal because of the balance of macronutrients in a serving.  The ingredients in this recipe provide healthy fats and  just enough complex carbs to sustain and power you through a challenging workout.

There is nothing worse than going to the gym and not being able to give your personal best because you didn’t get in the proper nutrition. I don’t know about you, but I don’t want my workouts to suffer because I drop the ball by not eating properly.  Whether you want to eat something for fuel or for fun, this satisfies both desires.

Here’s the ingredients you need:
